Hypoglycaemic Brain Injury: A Case Report
Keywords:Hypoglycemia, Brain Injuries, Diffusion Magnetic Resonance Imaging, Cerebral Cortical Necrosis, Prognosis
Neurological features of severe hypoglycemia range from reversible focal deficits to irreversible coma or death. Diffusion weighted MRI of brain image is a useful tool in evaluating profound hypoglycemic brain injuries. We report a case of 27 year old male who died from brain injuries following an episode of prolonged hypoglycemia. We here discuss the neuropathological and diffusion-MRI changes of hypoglycemic brain injuries and its prognostic importance.
